In other words, SafeDRIVE’s enforcement intentions will target both passenger car and commercial motor vehicle driver behaviors. Such as reckless driving, speeding, tailgating, failure to wear safety belts, distracted driving, and driving under the influence. Most importantly they will make efforts to ensure that CMV drivers follow the industry rules. Such as hours of service compliance, commercial driver license compliance, medical certification, and commercial motor vehicle credentialling.

According to the FMCSA, SafeDRIVE began in 2014. When 400 troopers, police officers, and FMCSA inspectors stationed on the 900-mile s of I-95. In the following states, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. For example, three days of targeted enforcement, resulting in zero traffic fatalities in the corridor. Because of the success of that endeavor, SafeDRIVE has extended to many additional states with many enforcement periods every year.
